    Notification tray internet connection icon missing

    Has anyone been able to restore the internet connection icon to the
    notification tray after using CCeaner to deleate the tray cache? I've tried
    all of the solution that I found in a week or more of searching Google (with
    the exception of rebuilding a dll file). I may not have ability to do this
    and would hate to cause real damage by screwing this up. Network works
    good, internet works good, computer is clean and fast. Kluker xp sp2 with
    only 768m of ram.

    I've been able to fix just about every problem that's come along (except
    lighting strike), But this one has me stomped. Any help would be greatly
    appreciated....Thanks in advance.

    Re: Notification tray internet connection icon missing

    I don't have an internet connection icon in my network connections. The
    title shows "LAN or High Speed Internet", but there is no icon for "High
    Speed Internet". I have one for 1394 connection to the printer and I can
    toggle that icon on and off. I have one my wireless network and I can toggle
    that one also. And I have local area icon for my NIC which is disabled but
    if I plug in cable to the router, I can see that icon in the notification
    tray also. It shows the connection to be disabled, which it is. Like I said,
    I've tried all the setting, deleting IconStreams, stop and restart explorer,
    ect, ect....but have not found a fix so far.

    I'm thinking that I may not have an icon for internet connection in the
    PastIconStreams key in the registry, but I can't find how to check for the
    default values. If windows rebuilds the IconStreams when explorer starts, it
    maybe a corrupted file but I can't identify which one...

    Re: Notification tray internet connection icon missing

    Hi
    I do not know exactly which type of connection you are using as an active
    connection, it might be that you have some 3rd party utility that runs the
    Wireless and displays an Icon, and it needs to be reconfigured. In the
    native Windows Network the icon is associated with the Wireless and or the
    Wire NIC connections.

    You have me confused here. I have never ever seen a "High Speed
    Internet" icon in my 7 years of using XP. I have 2 wireless connections
    listed and a LAN icon. If I am connected by cable to a router the LAN
    icon shows "traffic" and if by wireless the wireless icon shows traffic.
    In "Network Connections" all three are classed as "LAN or High Speed
    Internet" to distinguish them from "Dial-up".
    You say that you can get both your wireless and LAN icons in the
    notification tray so I don't see what your problem is.
    Did you at some time have either a USB modem or a direct connection to
    a modem which you no longer use? If so it's possible that the icon you
    may have used has been deleted from the tray and it would not reappear
    unless you decided to use that device again.

    Re: Notification tray internet connection icon missing

    I'm using a Linksys wireless adapters and it connects to the network and the
    internet. There is only one icon on the notification tray, a single computer
    with the radiating wave form for wireless connection. All well and good.
    However, up to about three weeks ago, I had the dual computer icon also in
    the tray. My other desk top also had this same icon. It has always been
    connected wirelessly. Now it only shows the wireless icon. My desktop has
    been wireless for about a year. I can't find any configuration in the
    adapters to display an icon for internet connection. Do you know of any
    place where the default string for PastIconStreams is available? I would
    like to compare.

    I misspoke when I said "High Speed Internet". I was actually "Internet
    Gateway" and was separated from LAN and High Speed Internet in network
    connections.

    As I described to Jack, both of my desktops lost this Internet Gateway icon
    at the same time. Clicking the "status" button on this icon would show
    traffic for the internet.

    When the cable is plugged into the Linksys router, I see that icon in the
    tray, however, I do not see the "Internet Gateway" icon in network
    connections. It was there once and I'd like to get it back....

    Re: Notification tray internet connection icon missing

    Hi
    It is Not a matter of missing Icon The tray does not cache icons per-se. If
    whatever connection/application that this Icon was related to, is not On,
    and Not configured to show the Icon, there will Not be an icon in the
    traybar.

    Re: Notification tray internet connection icon missing

    OK! I fixed it......for now....maybe!

    Seems that the sequence of loading the UPnP Device Discovery and UPnP
    service some how get confused.

    I disabled both services. Then disabled UPnP in the router. Then disabled
    both services in Windows Network Components. Reboot. Re-registered all of
    the DLL files (atl, hnetcfg, netshell, netcfgx, and netman) and rebooted.
    Went into router and enabled UPnP and set selected SSDP and UPnP in Windows
    Network Components, and the icon in the Notification Tray appeared and the
    Services were turn on automatically.

    Thanks everyone for your help!
